Repairing and Replacing Septic Tank Covers

Septic tank covers play an integral role in the health of your septic system and keep the people around the tank safe. It’s important to make sure septic tank covers are securely in place and that they’re structurally sound. If you’re experiencing an issue with septic tank covers, contact Atlanta Septic Tank Pros for an estimate on repairs and replacements.

Septic Tank Covers are Imperative

Most of the time, septic tank lids are submerged in the earth, so it’s easy to forget that they’re down there working. The lid serves a couple of purposes. First, it keeps debris out of the tank, so that the wastewater being processed inside can continue being processed properly. Secondly, they keep people and animals out of the tank. Undoubtedly, a fall into the tank could cause serious injury, and perhaps even death.

The Integrity of Septic Tank Covers Varies

Many septic tank lids are made of cement and are extremely heavy. When you call in a technician to help you with a lid, the use of special equipment to lift it will almost certainly be necessary. Other newer models can be removed with two people. It’s almost impossible to gauge the strength of septic tank lids just by looking at them and measuring them, which is one of the reasons why it’s very important to protect them and ensure that nobody ever drives over the system with a vehicle.

Get Help Repairing or Replacing Your Septic Tank Lid

Because of the obvious health and safety implications involved with septic tank covers, it’s essential to have yours evaluated by a professional if it becomes cracked or broken. In some cases, repairs can be done to restore a lid, but if the damage is extensive enough that you’re considering replacing it, it’s a good idea to have the whole system examined. If the septic tank lid was damaged due to external force, probability is high that damage occurred to the tank as well. The same thing can be said for age. If the septic tank fails due to age, the rest of the system could well need replacing due to deterioration, too.

Be Safe if Your Septic Tank Lid is Broken

Mark off the area right away if the lid is no longer functional or structurally sound. Place caution tape around it and be sure to keep kids and pets out of the area. Do not try to manufacture your own top. Anything on the market today has been tested to ensure it will withstand the force of dirt that may be packed over the top, as well as the weight of any people that may walk over it. Once the area is secure, call in a professional.

Very Affordable

They easily figured out what's wrong and they told me they could fix it right away. They were so friendly and were able to keep me calm as they resolved this issue. I will be calling them again in the next couple of years to have it maintained. I really felt that this was one of my best decisions. I am thankful.
